Happy New Year everyone! Wow another year, another opportunity! Just want to remind us all that we all have a purpose that we must fulfill, but before I get into that, I ask us to all meditate on this scripture; it could be your scripture for this year, it could be your scripture for this month. Just let it speak to you:
Isaiah 43:19: “Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert”.
BEHOLD means: see, observe, watch, inspect. God is saying just watch me.
God said HE WILL DO: What God is saying will come to pass. God’s word does not return to Him void. So when God says He will do something, no one on earth can stop Him, because all Power in Heaven and on earth belongs to Jesus. God’s promises and He does what He says.
SOMETHING NEW: God will do something you have never seen before! And when God is saying this, we should be excited because it will be something we never imagined! Something extraordinary. Something supernatural. Something breathtaking! This is God Almighty speaking, The I am that I am.
God said IT SHALL: Not it may or might. Shall means expressing a strong assertion or intention. God is strongly insisting, letting you know that His promises, your dreams, prophecies, breakthroughs shall happen!
SPRING: This means to rise, act suddenly or swiftly. It will happen. Nothing can stop it.
FOURTH: This means out and away from the starting point. God is saying there shall be a SUDDEN CHANGE or turnaround from where you are at. There shall be a sudden shift or movement.
SHALL YOU NOT KNOW IT?: You will see it with your very own eyes. You should believe deeply without a doubt. Do you not know? There is no question about it, it will happen! Don’t you know that it shall happen? God is involving us in the conversation; He is making us understand that He wants us to agree with our turnaround as it shall happen.
I WILL EVEN MAKE A ROAD WAY IN THE WILDERNESS: The wilderness is busy and route-less, but God said He will make a way out of the mess, the difficulty, the hard times. He is the one who made a way in the Jordan River. So be strong in the Lord and the Power of His Mighty Hand. Our God is Mighty beyond words! He will surely make a way, so do not worry how or where, or when. He said He will do it!
A RIVER IN THE DESERT: Desert we all know is a barren area; a place that is deserted. Where there is very limited resources for survival of things. RIVER means overflow of water. God will make a river in the desert, which means He will bring life into that deserted situation; something extraordinary will come out of the situation. It is the water that is needed in the desert for life to occur. Where there is water, plants can grow and humans can survive. Therefore when God is saying He will make a river in the desert, He means He will not just bring life to your situations, but there will be an OVERFLOW because the river will cause life all around you.
Just to encourage you all this year that no matter the trials, the tears, the frustration that will happen this year, just know that God will bring you out!! Remember: “After you have suffered for a while, I will establish you and make you perfect”. 1 Peter 5:10. Our pain is an indication that our success will be greater!! So keep the Faith and keep working towards your dreams, goals and purposes!
